This wasn’t supposed to happen.
For most of the first part of the Major League Soccer season, just about everyone looked at Sporting Kansas City and thought they were one of the better teams in the league. After easily taking down Toluca in the Concacaf Champions League and progressing farther than any other MLS team in the competition all while holding their own in MLS league play despite the packed schedule, things looked to be going great for SKC.
